RE: C-5/C141 wings

RE: Airbus pilots

Very good question Bryan. I know that we can not compare but when I use my left hand to fly in Flight Simulator, my sensibility is a lot different than when I use my right hand (I'm right hand).

RE: Best looking cabin crews

Hi Iainhol,

You should see the cabin crew of spanish airline "Air Plus Comet". The girls wear a red mini-skirt (real mini).

When an Air Plus arrived here in Faro, the airport almost stop working because everybody wanted to see the cabin crew.

Cheers
